Just for Laughs Isaac v Darren "The Giant!!" 

Darren sees the funny side of this little Joke. One of our newest and youngest Blackbelts jumps in to partner Darren while his REAL partner Paul is standing in the background enjoying the Joke. 

Isaac completes a Bunkai with Darren then switches out with Paul to continue the grading.

Well done Darren today, gaining your 1st Kyu. Well deserved.
